SafeCharge (AIM: SCH), the partner of choice for businesses who demand more from payments technology, today announced the launch of Identity Manager, an innovative solution for seamless automation of digital Identity Validation. With identity verification being one of the thorniest challenges for online businesses, Identity Manager streamlines complex background checks in a fast and cost-effective manner.
With over ten years of expertise in highly regulated payments markets, SafeCharge has designed Identity Manager as an agnostic gateway enabling merchants to connect to a wide range of identity validation providers worldwide, including eKYC, document verification as well as age verification, PEP and sanction checks. SafeCharge Identity Manager is fully incorporated into the SafeCharge Native+ Payments Engine; and is therefore easy to implement as part of SafeCharge Hosted Payment Pages as well as through dedicated APIs.
The solution automates customer verification flows, cleverly re-routing checks to an alternative provider should one be unsuccessful. In case of a failed eKYC check, customers are invited to upload their documents and get verified using a mobile phone or a desktop for the utmost security. Check flows can also be customised according to customer geographical location as well as business and sector requirements.
Identity Manger is addressed to those online businesses for which identity validation checks are a mandatory requirement subject to industry regulation, or required by businesses on their own. These include not only gaming, financial services and marketplaces, but also insurance and telecoms providing digital online services.
Yuval Ziv, CCO SafeCharge, explains: “The beauty of Identity Manager is that with one single contract and one unified reporting interface, businesses can stay ahead of customer authentication regulation requirements and prevent fraudulent transactions using the relevant local identity validation checks wherever their customers are.” He added: “SafeCharge runs the smart routing logic between check providers which provides a huge time saving and ensures the smooth operation for our customers”.
